“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” —Mark Twain.
40 Years in the Hospitality Industry
Valley Forge launched its first running line fabric collections in 1991.This initial launch was to make 50 sample books, and send to the top 50 companies to select fabric for hotels. This was just the start of something that would continue to grow – and still growing.
Valley Forge then moved from NYC to Fort Lauderdale where they currently reside business.
In 1997, Michael joined the family business and is now Co-President along with his sister, Diana Dobin. It has truly been quite the adventure and is now a family business. Innovative decision-making is now being influenced by multiple generations which created a unique dynamic and perspective. Valley Forge continues to push the envelope as a textile industry leader.
Innovative Textile Solutions
Since 1997, Valley Forge has graduated to more running line items; from sheer and drapery to the launching of new product categories including their first major grouping of FRESH® products (Fabrics Redefining Environmental Standards for Hospitality). VFF is now the largest supplier of decorative fabrics for the hospitality industry as well as standing strong as being a sustainable steward.
